USA Based Wigan Fan Travels 5000 Miles Only For Bristol Game To Be Postponed

USA Based Wigan Fan Travels 5000 Miles Only For Bristol Game To Be Postponed

There's nothing like an away day for a football fan, even the annoyance of travel can be forgotten by a good sing-a-long and a stop at a motorway services. But travelling 5,000 miles to find there's no game can't be fun.

England is currently being beat up from all sides by the Beat from the East. It has made my journey to work hell- that 10 minute work is now really cold and I nearly slipped at one point.

Of course it's causing all sorts of actual difficulties to people too.

In these times of extreme weather there's always a good chance of a football match or two being called off, especially in the Football League where underground heating might not be as good.

That's exactly what happened to Wigan Athletic and their game against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night when Rovers pitch was frozen. That was bad news for Will Jones who travelled nearly 5,000 miles only to find out the game was off.

Speaking to the Wigan Post the Utah native said, "I was disappointed, but I had known since last week that there was a good chance it would get called off, so I was prepared a little bit."

But Wigan chairman David Sharpe was quickly in touch to offer Jones' the chance to go to the training ground the next day to meet the players, which the American unfortunately had to turn down:

Will said, "It's amazing, it's great. But it's not surprising because the club has always treated me greatly. It's amazing how kind everyone at the club is, it's a really fan-orientated club. I can't make it to the training ground, but I'm just happy to be able to watch their game (vs Blackburn)."

He's supported the Latics since meeting a fan of the club whilst at uni in 2012 and with their actions this week there's no doubt that he'll be a fan for life.

We just hope he gets to see an entertaining game on Sunday.
